Nothing adds years to your smile’s appearance more than discoloration. While tooth discoloration is a normal part of the aging process, there are multiple factors that can accelerate the discoloration of teeth. Certain foods are known to cause yellowing, browning, and stains on the teeth to develop. However, if you have noticed that your smile has started to dull, teeth whitening in Dallas will reverse the discoloration to give you a younger, revitalized smile. To keep your new smile as white as possible, you will need to avoid the top stain causing foods.

How do you feel about your smile? Do you feel comfortable flashing your pearly-whites around your co-workers, friends, and family? Are you proud of the aesthetics of your teeth? If you are not content with the color and look of your teeth, then you are not alone. Discoloration in teeth can have a negative effect on self-esteem, but avoiding stains and dull shades is essentially unavoidable. Food and drinks stain teeth, and yellowing occurs naturally, as you age. Instead of heading to your local store to pick up over-the-counter whitening kits, get the professional teeth whitening treatment from Vanderbrook and Hoppe Dentistry, located in Dallas, TX.

Is there a little something you’d like to fix about your smile? A chipped or slightly cracked tooth, a couple of teeth that are irregularly spaced or crooked, or teeth that are overly worn. If you see any of these when you smile in the mirror, then cosmetic bonding may be the solution. At the Dallas, TX, office of Vanderbrook and Hoppe Dentistry, Dr. Drew Vanderbrook and Dr. Joanne G. Hoppe, use cosmetic bonding to quickly and effectively create beautiful smiles.
Cosmetic Bonding in a Flash
More often than not, a cosmetic bonding procedure can be completed in just one visit to our office. Dr. Vanderbrook or Dr. Hoppe will use a composite resin and apply it directly to the tooth or your teeth that require repair. But before applying the resin, they use a special color chart to match the composite to your natural tooth color. Using a composite, the dentists can blend colors for a perfect match. In some cases, they may recommend teeth whitening before the cosmetic bonding procedure. Unlike teeth, composite resin cannot be whitened, so you’ll want to make sure that your teeth are the color you desire before the bonding process.
The Cosmetic Bonding Process
Before applying composite resin, the dentist will need to prepare the tooth. Then, the composite resin is applied layer by layer. Each layer is hardened with a special curing light, and finally the dentist artfully molds and sculpts the material to the perfect shape.
Cosmetic bonding can last for years with a bit of tender loving care. Brush and floss daily, schedule regular checkups in our office, and be sure to avoid biting on hard objects such as nuts and bones, because cosmetic bonding materials can chip.

Believe it or not, 2015 is just around the corner. So what’s your resolution for the new year? How about a whiter and brighter smile? With the Opalescence teeth whitening system from Vanderbrook and Hoppe Dentistry in Dallas, TX, a whiter smile can be one new year’s resolution that’s easy to keep.
Teeth become stained for a variety of reasons, including:
- The foods and beverages we consume, such as carrots, tomato sauce, coffee and red wine
- Tobacco use
- Certain medications
- The unavoidable aging process
- Teeth grinding or injury leading to small cracks that collect stain-causing debris
Opalescence Teeth Whitening to the Rescue!
Dr. Drew Vanderbrook and Dr. Joanne Hoppe use Opalescence Boost for the best in teeth whitening and patient comfort. Opalescence Boost relies on the power of hydrogen peroxide to chemically remove stains and make your teeth several shades whiter. In addition, there is the benefit of a reduced risk of teeth sensitivity associated with teeth whitening, because Opalescence Boost contains potassium nitrate, as well as fluoride to strengthen enamel and help prevent cavities. The entire treatment takes only about one hour. Then, you go home with a whiter smile.
To maintain that white smile or to whiten your teeth in the convenience and comfort of home rather than the dentist’s office, Drs. Vanderbrook and Hoppe recommend Opalescence at-home teeth whitening kit. This contains more of the professional strength formula that’s needed for the best results. You’ll be given custom-fitted trays to use with the whitening gel that the doctors select to match your needs. Just wear them as frequently and for the length of time recommended.

If you’ve often thought of getting braces to straighten your teeth, but don’t want the hassle of tradition metal braces and brackets, Invisalign aligners may be just right for you.

Whatever your reason, you can have the straight smile of your dreams with Invisalign from the Dallas, TX, dental office of Dr. Drew Vanderbrook and Dr. Joanne G. Hoppe.
Step-by-Step with Invisalign
The first step on the road to a straighter smile with Invisalign is a 3D computer image of your teeth. With this same technology, you’ll see how your teeth will move and you’ll even been able to see what your smile will finally look like. Then, your personalized treatment plan is formulated. Based on this individual plan, clear Invisalign aligners are produced just for you. As the name suggests, these clear, plastic aligners are practically invisible and won’t irritate your cheeks and gums.
Your Role in Straightening Your Teeth with Invisalign
Your job is simple: wear your aligners throughout most of the day, easily removing them to eat, brush and floss. You’ll change out each set of aligners for your upper and lower teeth every two weeks until your teeth are straight and beautiful. The entire treatment process usually takes anywhere from six months to about two years. During that time, we’ll see you every couple of weeks to monitor the progress of your treatment.
